Jump to last reply

Dear Fodorites,

After having thought for months, we (my family includes my wife, father and close to 2 year daughter) have finally decided to visit Australia in October. We have read a few articles and posts online, post which we have thought of the itinerary detailed below.

02-Oct-17 Reach Melbourne at 6.10pm
03-Oct-17 Melbourne
04-Oct-17 Melbourne
05-Oct-17 Melbourne
06-Oct-17 Melbourne
07-Oct-17 Leave for Gold Coast around 7 am
08-Oct-17 Gold Coast
09-Oct-17 Gold Coast
10-Oct-17 Leave for Cairns around 7 am
11-Oct-17 Cairns
12-Oct-17 Leave for Sydney around 7 am
13-Oct-17 Sydney
14-Oct-17 Sydney
15-Oct-17 Leave for India at 7.10pm

We would request your invaluable help to understand if the itinerary looks doable. We don't want the trip to be hectic anywhere. Also, please let us know if the sequencing and number of days stay at each location has been though of appropriately.

Also, please guide about the not to be missed experiences, especially in Gold Coast and Cairns. Which company should we contact for scuba diving in Great Barrier Reef. Which are the best entertainment parks to visit in Gold Coast.

Thanks a ton in advance
